Two teams this NBA season have shaken off last year's struggles, fully embraced the tenets of their now Coach of the Year candidate head coaches and turned a history of dysfunction into a state of basketball bliss.

The Warriors are an early season surprise.
The Golden State Warriors got the job done in their first home game in more than two weeks.
